Use a water quality sensor, turbidity sensor, and weather/anemometer sensor to monitor the pH, dissolved oxygen content, conductivity, and turbidity of a natural body of water, determining how water quality changes in response to changes in environmental factors.
Students monitor the quality of a natural body of water in several locations to determine how water quality changes in response to changes in environmental factors. They also:
Students gain experience conducting the following procedures:
Sensor User Guides with calibration instructions and tables - Several
Chemical test kit (optional)
Duct tape, roll
Long-handled sampling device
Wading boots (optional) - 1 pair
Wash bottle containing distilled or deionized water
Wide-mouth sampling jar or small plastic bucket with a handle
This experiment may require software and an interface for data collection.
